About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

The entire focus of Dr. Steinbrech’s practice revolves around the philosophy of using Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Techniques. Smaller incisions which are well hidden, and less invasive techniques with delicate work, help to minimize bruising, decrease recovery time, and optimize consistently natural results.

He has incorporated this philosophy into all of his techniques including: Mini-Incision Facelift and Necklift, Mini-Incision Browlift (though the eyelid crease), No-scar Lower eyelid lift, Short-Incision Breast Reduction, Trans-Axillary Breast Augmentation (under the arm), Post-Pregnancy Scarless Breastlift (augmentation through a tummy tuck incision), and Mini-Incision Liposculpture (using smaller, fewer, and hidden incisions).

Dr. Steinbrech and his staff are committed to delivering outstanding patient care and service, and believe in the importance of establishing a long term patient-physician relationship. Dr. Steinbrech feels so strongly about individualized attention, that he speaks with each patient the night before surgery to answer any questions, and also checks in on the patient the evening of the surgery to personally ensure a smooth, post-operative course. His standard of compassionate care of the highest quality is emphasized and employed by the rest of his attentive staff. The priority of the office is to provide a pleasant, comfortable, and discreet environment, while delivering efficient and professional services. Whether choosing Hospital-based treatments or more private care in our JJACHO-approved surgical center complete with board-certified anesthesiologists, the staff is dedicated to maintaining a seamless, positive experience.

Professional Background

Dr. Steinbrech is a fully-trained Plastic Surgeon, Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons under the American Board of Medical Specialties. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in Minimally Invasive Aesthetics. He incorporates this philosophy into all of his surgical and non-surgical techniques.

He has been selected as one of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons by the Consumers’ Research Council of America

Surgical Training: Dr. Steinbrech underwent eight years of surgical training at New York University in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. He was trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the prestigious NYU Institute of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This included training at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital by the icons of the latter part of the 20th century including mentors McCarthy, Aston, Baker, Tabbal, and Pittman.
